IL-2 Sturmovik: Cliffs of Dover Blitz Edition

IL-2 Sturmovik: Cliffs of Dover Blitz Edition is now available on Steam, offering an updated version of this Windows combat flight simulator. This carries a 25% launch discount, and it is a completely free upgrade for owners of the original version. Here's a trailer with a look along with word on what's improved here:

1C Game Studios, in partnership with Team Fusion Simulations, is proud to announce the release of a completely updated and improved BLITZ edition of the realistic air combat simulator IL-2 Sturmovik: Cliffs of Dover.

Already known for its incredibly detailed cockpits, massively popular Multiplayer, and complex flight, engine, weapons and damage systems, Cliffs of Dover has now been updated to state-of-the-art DX11 graphics and has had over 20 new flyable aircraft types and variants added to it.

In addition to the 25 original Spitfire, Hurricane, Bf-109 and Bf-110 types, players now have the opportunity to fly new aircraft, such as the rare Bf-109E-4N with its high octane, high-rpm engine and 30mm cannon. Players can also experience the C-6 ground attack version of the Bf-110 and the powerful twin-engine Bristol Beaufighter in both day and night-fighter versions.

Glorious new autumn and winter maps allow players to continue the campaign later into 1940 and the era of the 'Blitz'.

Completely revised special effects and damage visuals provide spectacular detail, allowing players to savor the effects of their powerful weapons before sending their opponent’s aircraft crashing and burning to the ground.

Speaking of which, new ground textures and scenery, as well as newly implemented cloud systems, provide for a stunning environment to fly over and through, using the revised and improved flight model that provides the accuracy and fidelity flight sim fans expect. On top of all that, new high-fidelity sounds bring the experience of virtual flight to life.

This title is a must-have for experienced flight sim enthusiasts as well as newcomers to the genre, and will provide endless hours of entertainment in the company of an established, numerous and dedicated online community.

Looks like it's old, broken version (Though apparently pretty decent with mods) is no longer on sale, but it was 50 bucks last time I looked! So at the very least this is a better value proposition! Wonder what kind of weird publisher nonsense got in the way of this being broken and unsupported for so long?

Waiting for my Dad to get back to me on what he thinks of this (He got it for free since he owned the OG), he spent dozens of hours working out how to get the Spitfire going in DCS so he's the closest person I know to being a Flightsim grognard, if he approves I will definitely get this. Many happy memories of family lans spent in the skies over the eastern front in IL2.

These kinds of games used to come with a 300 page manual with a binder. I need to get a second screen or a printer for the checklists I think. And also play with the lights on so I cna see the keyboard, as the old Sidewinder Pro only has 9 buttons, twist, throttle and a coolie.
